Happy New Year!

What Will Idaho Look Like In 2018?

The new year is here, and Family Policy Alliance of Idaho is hitting the ground running! The 2018 session of the Idaho Legislature convenes in mere days. Religious liberty, parental rights, and life remain under constant attack by groups like the ACLU and Planned Parenthood who are fully committed to eradicating religious freedom. They bring dozens upon dozens of people to the Statehouse to speak out against life, biblical values, and freedom.

Good policy only happens when good people make their voices heard. Family Policy Alliance of Idaho will continue to protect, promote, and defend religious liberty, family, and life. We will be your eyes, ears, hands, and feet at the Idaho Legislature.

You can count on us to alert you throughout, and at times, ask you to make your voice heard. Legislators need to know what you think and that you will hold them accountable for their vote.

What will 2018 bring to Idaho?  It is up to God’s people!

While promoting good legislation, we must also stand firmly in the path of bad policy.

Each year, the battle for family, faith, and freedom intensifies. The contemporary politically correct orthodoxy has become more belligerent and more inclined to punish anyone who stands in their way. Anti-religion groups continue to bully and coerce faith-based business owners, educators, and others who choose to honor God in their work.

U.S. Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito said, “You don’t need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows. A wind is picking up that is hostile to those with traditional moral beliefs. We are likely to see pitched battles in courts and Congress, state legislatures and town halls. But the most important fight is for the hearts and minds of our fellow Americans.”

He is right. And, if the trend to eradicate Christian influence strengthens, our ability to live out our faith and impact our culture will be greatly diminished. We must maintain the God-given freedom to impact Idaho for Jesus.

What can you do?

  • Take a few minutes to weigh in when Family Policy Alliance of Idaho asks you to make your voice heard.
  • Forward our email updates and alerts to friends and family
  • Pray for Idaho, our elected officials and Family Policy Alliance of Idaho

What will 2018 bring to Idaho? That depends largely on us…the Church.

Happy New Year,
